Cross-posting from the DebiaN900 thread, this may be a more appropriate place.

-----

Ok, I used the old version of DebiaN900 to setup Debian on my spare N900. There's one problem. U-Boot doesn't show the entries

I can choose between: attachboot, eMMC boot, SD boot, etc. I don't get the menu as on the photo here: http://i.imgur.com/5HKgggR.jpg

The generated configure-uboot.sh was:
http://paste.ubuntu.com/19067425/

I changed EXT_CARD to INT_CARD, but the problem persists.

The package installed is: u-boot-flasher

Looks like corrupted FAT partition on which are stored U-Boot files and images (typically MyDocs). Try to format it again as FAT32.

On linked picture is not U-Boot.

Reformatted MyDocs and everything works ok, Thanks!

Hello, I installed U-Boot on my N900 and then tried to install NITDroid. After some work, I messed it all up and now my phone is not working. I can access U-Boot's menu and console, but the OS is not booting. I would reflash my phone but if I connect it to a computer it won't be recognized. Any idea?

Seems you have solved your problem. In my case I had to do some workaround: battery went down and I had to use Rescue OS to bring it up. Thanks to Pali, I have been able to put the images for Rescue OS as simple files on the sd-card and tell U-Boot to load them to memory and boot Rescue OS. After having charged the battery, I flashed the phone on a Mac (don't remember exactly, but I'm sure I had to do that in steps: probably kernel only and then a normal flash).
